The Myriad Team

Myriad is a team. We have some of the best and brightest professionals in our industry. It is our pleasure to exceed your expectations.

Bob Martin - Principal
I started Myriad in 2006 to bring energy efficient lighting and control products to market. I believed technology was going to change the industry and allow new entrants into the market. It was becoming clear that "energy" will play a large role in lighting decisions. Myriad which essentially means "countless or endless" seemed like the perfect name for this new organization focused not on the traditional, but on the new. I am proud of our team, grateful to our Manufacturers and Customers, and look forward to many more years of great success serving our partners.
Devin Kehoe – Outside Sales
Devin has been with Myriad Energy Solutions for 7 years and currently works with specification market and fills in other markets as needed. He enjoys spending his free time with his family. Devin currently serves as a Captain in the Army National Guard and has dedicated 19 years of service.
Steve Smith – Outside Sales
My primary focus is outside sales, specifically working with and supporting some of our key distribution partners. When I am not helping my distributors be successful you can find me listening to live music with my beautiful wife or losing golf balls on the golf course.

I am very proud of my three amazing children, as I’m adjusting to being an empty-nester here in the Canton area. I graduated from Muskingum College with a degree in football and Business Administration.

I am delighted to be a part this dynamic industry; along with Myriad and my customers "We Will Light Northern Ohio"
David Morris - Outside Sales

I believe in true partnerships, including helping to identify industry challenges and helping customers increase cost-efficiency.

My project design experience and product knowledge allow me to communicate effectively with specifiers and end users on a variety of approaches to their lighting and controls needs. I’m well-versed on photometric software and am able to provide calculations quickly. I also have experience with lighting audits, cost analysis, and ROI calculations and enjoy partnering with end-users in order to see them come to a successful transition to LED and assist them in securing energy rebates with utility.
